  • "We had a very relaxing three nights in the Shepherds hut."

    It was perfect and the hosts Ann and John were lovely :-) I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a break from the rat race. Peaceful location but not far from Lewes and the coast. Some lovely local pubs too which do good food. Thanks for having us Mike & Belinda x
